Screen Media Films has acquired North American rights to thriller A Good Marriage, adapted from Stephen King’s short story from the collection “Full Dark, No Stars,” says Variety.

King wrote the screenplay and Peter Askin directed the film, starring Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang.

Screen Media plans to distribute the film in early October — the start of the Halloween season — with a nationwide theatrical release accompanied by a day-and-date VOD platform release.

LaPaglia and Allen portray a married couple with the wife discovering the horrifying stranger inside her husband while he’s away on a business trip — ending a good marriage.

    Can’t wait for this movie to come out! It’s definitely my favourite from “Full Dark, No Stars”!

    Wow, this is one King novel that flew by me; I’ll have to check it out…

      Its not a novel, its a collection of shorts… and all of them are awful. Trust me, skip this one and re-read Skeleton Crew.
